Sept.: Nat’l Yoga Month

Now we’re into the 4th week of fall semester…feeling stressed? Did you know that September is National Yoga Month? Yoga is one way to combat stress; there are many other ways like meditating, running, listening to music, or even just getting enough sleep! I like spending quality time with my kitties, myself.

But if you’re interested in trying yoga and you didn’t sign up for Health Education 341 (Yoga/Stress Reduction), Andersen Library has materials that can help.

Office Yoga coverSearch the HALCat library catalog to find books such as Complete guide to pilates, yoga, meditation & stress relief (3rd-Floor Main Collection, GV481 .C66 2003) and Office yoga: Tackling tension with simple stretches you can do at your desk (3rd-Floor Main Collection, RA781.7 .F75 2003), as well as videos such as Total yoga (2nd-floor Browsing DVDs, Academic, RA781.7 .T685 2004). Ask a librarian for assistance with finding materials in Andersen Library.

The campus Wellness Resource Center, located in the lobby of the Ambrose Health Center, also has materials that can be used, such as the DVD Yoga for Every Body, which provides 45 workouts for beginner, intermediate and advanced students.
